About the Song
Piano notes and music reading No language is easy to learn except for our mother tongue. Mother tongue is a language which we start learning as soon as we are conceived. But learning some other language can be difficult if you are really not into it. Piano Notes are written in a completely different language. Agreed that the characters in the piano notes are very artistic and beautiful but they are equally strange to beginners and newcomers. But here is one interesting fact. Learning music reading from a piano notes music sheet is not a very difficult task. Actually it is much easier than learning a foreign Asian language like Chinese. Memorization and repetition are the two main ingredients for success in mastering the language of piano notes. So realistically speaking, once you are done reading the basics, all you have to do is practice the language as much as you can. To say in a very classical tone, practice till each and every note starts running through your veins. (More...)    Download this sheet!
About the Artist
Ralph Merrifield was born in Barre Vermont in 1957. He remembers singing "Away In The Manger" at age six,imagining at that time what it would be like to have his name in the composer index of the hymnal! While attending Mansfield High School, he learned guitar, listened to the Beatles, became active in band & chorus. He attended Westfield State College as a Music Composition major. At that time he became involved with the local ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. Upon graduation, he married his wife in 1979. From 1983-1986, they were involved with the First Congregational Church (Hopkinton MA). In 1986, they and several other families were sent out by that church to plant a new congregation. This new church (New Hope Chapel in Westboro MA)continues today. In 1990, Ralph started folding his choruses into Sunday morning worship. The pastor and elders of New Hope Chapel encouraged him to develop and expand this songwriting Ministry. Thus began New Hope Publications (later renamed New Hope Music).
